My Finger Grew

A few months ago when I started chemo, one of the possible side affects was weight loss, and loss of appetite. The chemo wiped out everything. I had no desire to eat food. Any time I would try it would come right back up. I began to waste away due to my lack of food intake. I was slowing dying. After a couple of rounds of chemo I decided to stop as it was too much to take. I wanted to die. In that time I lost nearly 60 pounds.

With the extreme weight loss, I needed to start purchasing a new wardrobe. Another side affect to the weight loss was my body began to shrink. I couldn’t wear certain belts anyone. My jackets didn’t fit, but the the biggest problem in my eyes was my wedding ring wouldn’t stay on my finger. The ring was now too big. It’s been nearly 4 months since I last wore my wedding ring.

When I woke up this morning I went into the medicine cabinet where my wedding ring was. I grabbed it from the shelf and placed it back where it belongs. I wasn’t sure if it was going to fit? It did! Perfectly!

My finger grew!

It wasn’t falling off my finger, or wiggling around. It was like I was putting my ring on for the very first time after it had been sized, and fitted.

What a great start to my day! (especially when my day starts with 4 enemas)

I can remember the day I bought our wedding rings. At the time I was desperate and didn’t have a lot of money so I went to Ben Moss Jewelry to get our rings. It was a big deal! I was so excited to put it on. I remember driving to Jamie’s parents house to show her the rings with my ring on because I was so excited to wear it. I couldn’t stop staring at it.

A wedding ring serves as a powerful reminder of the vows you and your spouse have made to one another. They are not just simple words. They are life giving words!

Powerful statements, and declarations are our wedding vows.

A ring reminds us of the one we have committed our lives to.

A wedding ring reminds us we are not alone.

A wedding ring reminds us we are better together.

A wedding ring reminds us of love!

Every day my body is getting stronger, and healthier. When I stepped on the scale this morning – I was up a pound and a half. Now that’s good news!
